There are many reasons why an insurance company may send an engineer to inspect the damage to your home. The main reason is to determine the cause of the damage to your home. For example, the company may send an engineer to inspect damage to your home if your roof is damaged in order to figure out if it was caused by a covered cause of loss (hurricane) or if the damage is from normal wear and tear. If after the inspection the insurance company denies your claim I suggest that you speak with an attorney in your local area who specializes in first party insurance law.

The main factor in time is who has to inspect the vehicle and make any determinations of fault or coverage. Once all the details are sorted out, getting a check is usually a 1 week process.
This (unfortunately) happens daily. Your insurance company will investiage the loss, take statements, and inspect the damage to both vehicles, many times the vehicle damages will tell the story. Did the parking lot have cameras? I have found these very useful many times. If it comes down to a draw, your insurance company will/should give the benefit of the doubt to their insured, thus denying the other party's claim. If you want to provide me with details surround the facts of loss perhaps I can be of more assistance.
